FOOD?

Nietzsche once commented; what is it that woman knows about cooking, in the context of men?

Is there a preferential difference between male consumption habits and food preferences versus female consumption habits and food preferences?

First, I think there is. Let us assume there is a vast hormonal difference between men and women. First, let us note that testosterone, testes, is the hormone inside of testicles, that which only man has. However, it does seem that both men and women both have testosterone, however the degree is different; it seems that men have at least 1000 X testosterone than women. This is why we will never see any woman on planet earth, irregardless of how many steroids she consumes or takes, dead lift 501 kg or beyond.

Also in the context of sports and fighting. If you took the worlds best tennis player, mail, Roger Federer, and pitted him against the worlds best female tennis player, Serena Williams, who would win and into what degree? It seems pretty obvious that Roger Federer would win, and most likely by a large margin. Similarly speaking, if you took the world greatest boxer or UFC MMA fighter, man, and pitted him against the worlds toughest female boxer or MMA fighter, who would win, no contest. Obviously the man.

Why does this matter?

The reason why I think this matters is that in a lot of the modern day world, it seems that the general bias is that women should cook for men. But what if it should be opposite; that instead, man is in focus of cooking, because he will ultimately have a greater taste for meat.

Carnivore preferences for men vs women?

Both men and women both love meat. However, assuming that meat, cholesterol, organ meat is a natural steroid, it seems that man would have a greater preference for it, and could also consume more of it.

For example, after Atlas lifting 1000 pounds, do I want to eat rice and quinoa? Hell no! I want the juiciest, bloodiest, reddest meat.

“Food”?

*peh2– traditionally the concept means to graze, to guard. For example, imagine a Shepherd letting his cattle graze on the nice grassy fields.

CHANGES?

In this limited world, which are some big things you wish to change fix or resolve?

1. Traffic?

So one of the big things I am very interested in is fixing this issue of traffic. Honestly speaking, during rush-hour the traffic is intolerable.

I’ve only lived here in LA for about two weeks, it seems that the big optimization we are trying to make is trying to save time. Fortunately we live within walking distance to the Culver City downtown area, which is great because we could kill two birds with one stone — A) we’re not stuck in traffic and B) we can enjoy the sun and the walk.

Even the big issue; the closest LA fitness to me is a 5 minute drive, but even on the drive back, it seems that the bumper to bumper traffic during rush-hour takes me almost 10 minutes! Insanely annoying!

Therefore some things I’m trying to figure out is how to save time in terms of fitness. The first simple thing is to just walk a lot, walking maybe the most beneficial thing you could do for your health and wellness.

The second thing is sun exposure. The more sun time you have, the better. If you’re worried about getting skin cancer or whatever, just put on a hat lots of sunblock and cover up.

Third, I really been enjoying going to the park and working out, both for the social life, the fresh air, and also for general well-being. I recommend the Kenneth Hahn park in LA — just drive all the way on top of the hill! There is a good calisthenics workout area.

Fourth, matters of health and physiology. A very practical thought I have is to just sell out the big bucks, pay for the 100% grass-fed beef, I think the benefits for you will be instrumental. This includes sleeping better, sleeping deeper, feeling more energized, and also certainly muscle Physiology related concepts.

2. Innovation?

Also a big thing I’m trying to innovate and pioneer is in regards to innovation. For me maybe this is my personal passion and my Archimedes lever — I am addicted to innovation, trying to make things better, more efficient and effective etc., and trying to come up with interesting novel ways to improve our lives. Why is this? Because I feel like I have some sort of duty as I have been seeking a lot of answers my whole life, and I think only recently I’ve found some answers.

3. Photo and art

At the end of the day, my number one greatest passion is photography.

How to Become

Become, Becoming:

What does it mean to become, and why does this matter?

The first thought is you and things are not static. You and things are dynamic, changing, ever evolving, ever rotating etc. I don’t think there’s really an ideal and state or goal. Rather, the end outcome is that your continuously become you, or become something different.

Anti finality

“It has been completed!” (Blaaaah… main protagonist or god Jesus figure then dies)

A weird thing is that a lot of people seek completion, or some sort of final end state and goal. What I personally believe in is that in fact, this isn’t and shouldn’t be the desired and goal. Instead, ever changing, forever evolution, never ending is better.

The end state and goal is not a zen peaceful tranquil life

In the past what I believed the end goal in state was was towards were achieving some sort of truly blissful peace, send, tranquility, emptiness. Now upon much consideration thinking meditation and contemplation and life experiences, I’ve actually discovered this is not the way. And also not the desired end goal.

On the contrary, my thought is perhaps the point of it all in the point of our lives is to seek ever greater challenges, hazards, danger, things to test our courage and will.

Thoughts in progress

What I love about philosophy is that it is a never ending journey. My only desire in life is that I continue having personally interesting thoughts until I die, whenever that is.

OUTLAST.

My thought is that the goal is to last, to endure. Even our best friend Nietzsche said that durability is the number one thing of value for humans!

Happy Thoughts: The Philosophy of Happy and Happiness

Currently settling down in my new life here in Culver, Culver City (Los Angeles), and feeling insanely happy. Then the thought: what is the philosophy of happiness? Why happiness, and how to become it?

1. Health is prime

The first thought is that health is prime, health is peak. That is, I believe that your focuses must first be critically directed towards your health. For example, simple things:

  1. Godlike sleep: a new experiment is that I’m trying to cut off my caffeine intake after 9 AM. I say first thing in the morning, before you go to the gym, maybe after you go to the gym, allow yourself to drink a shit load of coffee 100% fine robusta, ERIC KIM Omakase coffee. The reason why I recommend robusta, especially 100% fine robusta is that I think arabica is too weak, and too sweet. If you want to peak health, I believe that the key is robusta. Why? Robusta has a higher caffeine content, and less sugar alcohol content, which means it will assist you in staying lean, and cutting down your body fat. I’m starting to get suspicious of even most plants and vegetables; all of it is cellulose, and sugar molecules. Even if you eat straight up Napa cabbage, which is used in kimchi, it is actually very sweet. the same thing goes with onions; onions for the most part part is just caramelized candy.
  2. Go to the gym first thing in the morning? Last night I slept a little earlier, maybe around 10 PM, and naturally woke up today around 5 AM, 5:15 AM. After downing a very very strong cop of ERIC KIM coffee, I immediately jumped into my workout clothes, went to the gym, a random LA fitness. When you wake up in the morning, it is cold and dark outside, which means that being outside is unpleasant. But when you go to the gym, the first thing you could do is hit the hot sauna, which is great because it warms up your bones and sinews, and then the big indoor space and the lights and the music of the gym stimulate you and wake you up. And also lifting heavy weights is fun there at the gym, because it seems that the gym is the only modern day place in which one is permitted to be loud. and also the reason why might prefer traditional commercial gym like LA fitness over equinox is I get the sense that equinox you are not permitted to be loud.
  3. Eating a lot of meat before going to sleep: I would recommend striving to eat at least 4 to 5 pounds of beef or lamb before you go to sleep. It could just be ground beef, I recently discovered this American Wagyu ground beef at Costco, 75%, 15%, which I love. Or just get the standard beef brisket in a huge slab and instant pot it. Or cut it up thinly and just pan fried on the frying pan on the stove. I believe this to be critical because it helps you fall asleep, and sleep deeply, and the meat will help you maximally recover your body, build muscle bone etc. Isn’t it so funny that nowadays we are taking all these silly supplements like collagen, but don’t people know that collagen is naturally present in beef, beef neck bone, beef tendons, bone marrow etc.?
  4. Sunlight: Another thing and the reason why I feel like LA is paradise to me; the sun. It’s funny because when I was undergraduate at UCLA, I never once recall ever complaining about the weather. It was perfect all year round. And also my mood was always always good as an undergrad at UCLA, never depressed. Compare this with being on the East Coast, or being in Europe during the winter; incredibly miserable. I remember feeling so miserable in Marseille France during the winter, and also equally miserable in Prague during the winter time. I think for myself I am a very sensitive soul; maybe it is less of an issue about the cold, but it is an issue of the sun. I like Denver Colorado because although it is cold, at least it is bright and sunny! A life without the sun is not a life worth living.
  5. Freedom of schedule and time: the reason why I believe it to be the greatest blessing in life to be self-employed, not even being an owner or a CEO of a publicly traded corporation is that you can set your own schedule, and live your own life according to your own whims and your own pace. Even the trap that a lot of CEOs and founders make is that once they go public, they no longer have freedom. They are still behelden to the opinions and desires of the investors. Maybe this is a good reason why does a good idea to never get any investors; fewer headaches, and fewer people you’re liable towards. Therefore the goal isn’t to build a billion dollar unicorn and to sell it or IPO it.
  6. Kids: I was thinking and contemplating about life before Seneca and life after Seneca. I can easily say that after Seneca came into the picture, I became at least 1 trillion times happier. Certainly the first year to two years is rough; it is almost like trench warfare World War I status. But truth be told it cannot be as hard as navy seals training, or Delta force training. Or Ranger training.
  7. Philosophy: Studying stoicism, and philosophy in general, reading my best friend has been instrumental. Why? It has helped me purge myself of all this baggage and scars from the past, and help me start new and afresh, no mental or moral or ethical baggage. Philosophy and happiness go hand-in-hand!
